More Outstanding Feedback on A1RM!!!
Nissansilvia.com -> QFM High Performance Street and Track Brake Pads! - Hardtuned.netA1RM are fantastic, more bite than a standard pad when dead cold, and only get better when they get hot, and better still when they start to smoke up and the rotors go blue!
Bendix Ultimate's which I had before these for roughly the same price are absolutely terrible in comparison. Pads aren't noisy, basically the A1RM is awesome, will buy again in the future!
QFM HPX Pads Fitted To An Import Legnum VR4!
OzVR4Got my HPX pads bedded in now and they are very impressive. Progressive and pull up very smoothly, or VERY quick if you really want. They also produce stuff all dust and aren't noisy at all with my slotted rotors either. For the money these are excellent pads and much more confidence inspiring than the crappy pads that were on for compliance.
Another case of QFM A1RM for the win!
OpelAus Forums - View Single Post - Brakes/BrakingThe QFM A1RM pads were a huge step up in pedal feel and control-ability...No more dead pedal, locking, ABS interference etc. The HPX pads I know nothing about but heard good things.
IMHO, if your ever doing a track day or maybe just hard driving, A1RM are the way to go...
QFM A1RM Fitted To Honda Civic!
Qfm High Performance Street And Track Brake Pads! - Boostcruising.comThe pads are mostly bedded in and I must say that I am VERY impressed.
Even when I was doing the progressive bedding (60-20, 80-20) they pulled up extremely well.
Very happy, will buy again!
What else can you say?!
OpelAus Forums - View Single Post - QFM High Performance Street and Track Pads!I have the A1RM's and these are by far and away the best "serious use" pads I have tried, bar none!!! If you want a high performance or track day pad these are the way to go!!!
In the SRi-T I tried EBC Green, EBC Red's, EBC Yellow's, Pagid, Ferodo DS2500 and the A1RM's win hands down!!!!! They even feel better than the Endless and Project Mu pads I have tried in my other cars...
Low dust, great pedal (the best pedal feel by a long way!), and excellent fade resistance with pedal control...
Highly recommended IMHO...
QFM HPX Fitted To VT V8 Holden Calais!
QFM HPX VT-VZ Police Spec Performance Brake PadsMy Calais was simply unstopable, brakes had no feel, no stopping power, it was no good at all. Then I discovered HPX brake pads. My car feels so much better, the car pulls up really quick with no brake noise and they don't fade at all.

QFM A1RM Fitted to JZA80 Supra!
SupraForums.com.AU - View Single Post - Brake Pads - QFM A1RM's / K750'sThought I'd add my 2c.
I recently made over my brakes with some braided lines, slotted rotors and the QFM A1RM pads. It wasn't just a pad change so I can't compare directly with the old set up however I'm bloody impressed with how the car pulls up now and I believe a lot of that is down to the new pads. The brake fade is quite minimul and significantly better than the stock Toyota pads I had on it previously. Slam on the brakes and it bites hard, time and time again. So much so that I sometimes feel if it pulled up quicker my face would somehow detach from my head and hit the windscreen like some weird crossover film between 'Gone in 60 seconds' and 'Face Off'. Unlike my old setup these certainly give me a sense of confidence through the twisties!
Either way, QFM A1RM pads = WIN
QFM are a cheaper alternative to Ferodo DS2500!
Brake Pads Users Ratings Guide - Skylines AustraliaI just got the QFM A1RM's and they went well at sandown. Greg was very helpful and delivery was only 2 days.
Very cheap for $130. I don't think I'll be spending big on pads again after how they performed at Sandown.
I will monitor the wear but I get to about 220kmh before jumping on the brakes and they felt similar to my DS2500's.
QFM A1RM - JZA80 Supra with upgraded 4/2 pot brakes!
SupraForums.com.AU - View Single Post - Brake Pads - QFM A1RM's / K750'sWell said and i couldn't agree more. I have been running with QFM A1RM pads in my RZ Supra (4/2 pot) for about two months now and i have not looked back. I previously had Project Mu's and for street and the odd track day i would not recommend anything other than the A1RM's. A fantastic, excellent performing pad from the moment you leave the garage!
QFM A1RM For the Win!
No link available, sent via Email!Just a bit of feedback on the A1RM that we installed on my girlfriends car a few months back. After a number of laps at Collie where previously her Ferodo's would start to get soggy, the QFM pads were still biting hard and gave her heaps more confidence in later braking. They were also biting harder from cold, and she didn't manage to get them to fade the entire time. I had a go and I was pretty impressed for the price of the pad!
QFM A1RM fitted to Subaru WRX STi with Brembo calipers!
Sent via email, no link availableHi Greg,
Quick update as promised on the A1RM's after a track day;
After missing a few track days due to extreme heat I finally got my STi out at Mallala over the weekend. It was windy and wet but I still managed to give the A1RM's a good working-over. The pad's held-up very well for the full 5 x 15min sessions held throughout the day. There are two very hard braking points at Mallala from 160+ klm/hr into a tight hair-pin - the A1RM's felt very reassuring with no brake fade at all. I couldn't be happier with the pads and will most likely order some for the rears soon.
QFM A1RM Fitted to R33 GTS-T Skyline!
Qfm High Performance Brake Pads, Including Comp 9! - Skylines AustraliaHave a set of a1rm on the front of my 33 gtst, definitely excellent value for money. After a hard session I'd hardly have any stopping power with OEM pads and would have to waste time letting them cool down, with the a1rm pads on I've not yet experienced fade and have plenty of bite where the oem's would have led me in to the nearest wall!
QFM HPX High Performance Street Pads fitted to Mazda 6 MPS AWD!
QFM High Performance Street and Track Pads! - Page 3Clocked up a few kilometres now and still pretty impressed, especially with the pedal feel.
I believe the new pads saved me from a mess today, I was driving at just under 60 kph beside a truck turning left in the the left lane (Bathurst RTA) when a Holden Rodeo pulled out in front of the truck. Spectacular quick stop with no dramas, just a few of those in and out words from my usually sedate co-pilot.
Virtually no dust - great
Terrific initial response on pedal
Thanks QFM & GSL RallySport - It would not have pulled up in time with the stock pads.
QFM A1RM Fitted to Toyota JZX100 Turbo Chaser!
QFM Brake Pads (JZX100) - JZX World ForumsA bit of an update guys. Have just fitted set of the A1RM pads to my 100 today, and taken it around the streets to bed them in.. and my god the improvement over the pads that were in it previously (presume OEM pads) is amazing. The responsiveness of brake pedal is awesome, even when they are still pretty cold. Haven't had chance to take it for a proper hills run, so we'll see how they perform there but is all very promising!
QFM A1RM Fitted to Toyota JZX100 Turbo Chaser! (Different one!)
QFM Brake Pads (JZX100) - JZX World ForumsJust came back from a track day with the A1RM Pads up the front. They held up VERY well and continued to do so throughout the day. Worth buying!
QFM HPX Fitted to VL Commodore!
http://www.**********************/bc...6&postcount=30First of all the customer service is GREAT, along with the advice, quick replies to e-mails and postage times etc. etc. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Now i got a set of HPX pads for the front of my VL Berlina, i also upgraded to a RBF600 type fluid as I was advised by Greg, after having them sitting in my room for 2 weeks I managed to find time to put them in, straight away i noticed a difference in braking and in the pedal compared to the old pads, I've now been driving around on them for almost 2 weeks, and am very very happy with them, i have alot more trust in my brakes during the "spirited driving" moments and also "tested" them from 100klm hr to almost a dead stop - and am amazed how quick it pulled up!
So thank you very much again for all your Help - Advice - Great Product and sponsorship of BCCC!
Another happy customer

A1RM up to the task in Rally and Race on 242mm Standard Rotors!
Just wanted to say how impressed i was with these pads.
I did a private practice session at Eastern Creek with the A1RM's on stock rotors with my X3 Excel. They didn't crack or warp the rotors, nor did they glaze or overheat the pads themselves. They would drop from 160-80 every lap at turn 2 with no fuss. Mind you it was the 20/11/09 which was 41deg and 63deg track temp. The rotors were ubove 400deg every session, after a cool down lap and drive into the pits, where they were checked. I could only guess what the temps were when the the brakes were actually being applied.Qfm High Performance Brake Pads - Boostcruising.comJust to back that further, the A1RM is the preferred pad of the QLD Hyundai Max Attack Challenge, which is a one make race series for stock X3 Excels of which we competed in last year:
Latho's Kennedy Test Day on Vimeo
The one make series regulations stipulate standard factory specification (not slotted or drilled) rotors must be used. We were fastest 2WD in the QLD Clubman Rally Championship (not just Excels, but ALL 2WD rally cars), and regularly had our rotors red hot. I can personally vouch for that fact that even on standard rotors and calipers, the A1RM is a great performer! Even though the X3 is relatively light (1000kg odd including roll cage, sump guards etc.), they have tiny brakes (242mm rotors) and most of the quick guys are profuse left foot brakers, which works the brakes particularly hard...
I didn't compete in the series this year, but the top 3 from this year, all ran QFM A1RM pads!

QFM A1RM Fitted To AE86 Sprinter!
Toyota Sprinter - AE86 Driving Club - View Single Post - QFM High Performance Street and Track Brake Pads!fitted the a1rm to the rear with new slotted rotors to my car (jdm 86) yesterday. holy flurking shnite, they are good! looking forward to a set for the front. really recommended guys.
QFM A1RM Fitted to JZA80 Supra!
SupraForums.com.AU - View Single Post - Brake Pads - QFM A1RM's / K750'sJust an update:
I had a chance to try these pads ( qfma1 ) this sunday at Oran park GP circuit.
They were great...
I had no brake fade during the whole 3 lap supersprint sessions x5 ( total 15 laps ).
On the straights i was getting ~220km/h and brakes felt solid, didnt even give a hint of wanting to fade!
Im happy with them and for the price, you cant go wrong.
The supra is a heavier car, and it gets some good speeds, and for it not to fade is saying something.
To give you an idea, i came 3rd outright for the day and managed a 1:21
Big thanks to gslrallysport
Will be buying from again
*** Use of A1RM pads in a street-only car! ***
We'd like to clear the air on an issue that has been brought to our attention. Just recently we've had a customer query us about rotor wear when using the A1RM in their road car. The customer was running A1RM in his daily, which albeit driven hard, was only used to drive to and from work, and the occasional run over the hills. The customer got 15,000 km from his rotors (which admittedly had already been machined once) and the pads.
Where this has caused some unrest is that they were very expensive two piece rotors, and so is up for new rotors at substantial cost, so in light of all this, I feel it is necessary to clear a few issues:
- The A1RM is a street/track cross over pad. Even though it is 100% streetable (cold bite is substantial, generally noise and dust are low enough), it is a pad capable of light track work (similar to a Project Mu HC+ or Ferodo DS2500), and thus will had some drawbacks when being used only in a street only driven car. If you're using the A1RM in your road car because you'd like the ultimate in street brakes, be prepared to change rotors sooner than you would with a regular street only pad.
- The pad below A1RM, the HPX, is a Bendix Ultimate equivalent in terms of performance, so is more than enough for most hard street driven cars. Because it's also very low dust and rotor wear, we supply them as a direct trade servicing pad to a local QLD Ford dealer for use in Falcon's and turbo Territories that use the C5 PBR caliper. Average pad life on those cars with the HPX is about 45-50k kms with low rotor wear.
- A rotor life of 15,000 k's on an already machined pair of rotors (so maybe 20-25,000 k's on new rotors) is fairly good for a pad with the performance of the A1RM. Equivalent pads with the same performance will be no better than this.
The A1RM gets a very good wrap because of it's price/performance ratio, and if you take your car to the track to do some light club springs or circuit work, and accept that brakes will wear out quicker using performance items, then it's still the perfect compromise. If you don't do any track work at all, then probably best to stick to the HPX.
Personally, I run the A1RM in both my rally car, and road car, and don't have an issue with it in either. Additionally, we're also well aware of road cars that have gotten 25,000-30,000 (about 1 year) and a couple of track days out of rotors clamped by A1RM, so the wear will vary with individual vehicles and applications.
Any further questions or dramas please do not hesitate to contact us direct on 1300 884 836.
